The Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) is the Spirit-led social justice ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University in which students from all walks of life come together in community to embody the Christian call to be the "salt of the earth" (Matt. 5:13). SALT helps students develop a passion and practice of social action. SALTers reflect God’s love for people by cultivating the skills of community organizing, awareness raising, and fund development. SALTers are equipped to lead lives of social justice and serve as agents for positive change in their communities.
Meetings are Tuesday evenings at 9:30 p.m. when classes are in session. Meetings take place at the multipurpose room of the Helge Center at the Chapel of the Resurrection. Like us on Facebook to keep up with our events.

For the 30th anniversary of the World Relief Campaign, the Social Action Leadership Team partnered with A Leg To Stand On to bring mobility to 400 children in Afghanistan by providing Prosthetic Limbs, Orthotic Devices, Mobility Aids, and Prosthetic and Orthotic Repairs & Adjustments. By helping these children gain movement, we are giving them the potential to achieve mobility, in all aspects of life, which can lead to equality and justice. Thanks to all who joined SALT in bringing mobility to children who are in great need through The 400 Movement.
